DL 1496 8-10 - New Song Interior?

Sat May 27, 2006 2:34 am

Im on DL 1496 on Aug 10. There is a first class on this flight. Will this be one of the new song aircraft that has been brought back into the mainline fleet with the updated F product? thanks!

N6712B, N6713Y, N651DL, and N693DL all now have F cabins and are ex-Song aircraft.

That was quick. Have they re-covered the seats and bulkhead walls in traditional DL colors as well?

The seats will be in dark blue leather.

Here are a few questions:

Will the new brighter reading lights be installed?
Will the No Smoking/Fasten Seat Belt/Lavatory sign be converted to the fluorescent white?

I never flown Song, but have seen photos and noticed that Song does not have what I have mentioned.

What routes are they flying? I'm flying an ex-song on the 30th PBI-LGA.

Really !?!

Wow ... that's fast!

Now the big question : we used to be able to tell a DL 757 vs a Song 757 by the seating chart ("normal" 757s have door 2L @ row 19, Song at row 9) ...

Is there any way from the DL website to differentiate between a newly first-classed Song aircraft, versus a normal old-style DL 757?

Other than the missing first class section, the only other change I know of between the DL and Song layouts was the removal of the galley by 2L, allowing something like 6-8 additional seats in the aircraft ...

(NWA 757s are also like this ... seats right up to door 2L)

Actually the song config. a/c had 154 seats in the main Y section while a standard DL 757 has 159 in Y.

As of 12/1 DL is showing 2 class 757s for all routes currently operated by song a/c. However, for both classes, it's showing the layout of a standard 757, not a "new" 757...

What will be the configuration of a ex-Song aircraft after being re-Delta'd ?

Will they put the galley back in by door 2L, and start the numbering for coach class at rows 19 and 20, like they do for current 757s ?

It doesn't seem like there's any way to tell from the website if you will be on a re-Delta'd Song aircraft, or a regular ol' DL 757 ...

No galley at 2L, don't know about the rest.

All of these flights are listed as 75K equp. which means that there is no first class. THese have been painted but according to the equpi listing still same Song interior.
The only valid opinions are those based in facts
